East German zoo worker killed by leopard

BERLIN — A leopard attacked and killed a zoo worker who was cleaning its cage in the eastern German city of Chemnitz on Saturday, police said.

The zoo director found the 23-year-old dead from a bite to the neck just after 9 a.m. A door between the stall and an outdoor cage for the Persian leopard appeared to have been accidentally left open, police spokeswoman Jana Kindt said without giving further detail.

The zoo was closed following the incident and was to remain closed on Sunday, she said.
